I don’t know how to keep the @ifinfo trick (see the attachment) without
separating them.  Maybe the @ifinfo part should be removed.

In the document, nearly the same (more on that later) copyright notice
is repeated three times.  A new contributor would have to adjust each
notice, which is error-prone.

Now, I said “nearly” because the “Copyright” lines are different, but
they should be identical.
